Book Summary:

To escape an undesirable match, Miss Notley must give up her riches for rags.

When Miss Coralynn Notley’s father barters her off to the first titled gentleman to come along, she realizes she must flee her home or be forced to wed a despicable man. Driven by desperation, she applies for the position of housekeeper at Tanglewood Manor, the home of the handsome Mr. Jonathan Ludlow.

The moment Jonathan sees Miss Notley, he is intrigued. She is far too young and inexperienced, yet there is something about her that that inspires a certain hope within him. Does he dare offer her the position of housekeeper or will doing so result in catastrophe?

The Rise of Miss Notley is the delightful tale of a mysterious gentleman and a determined young woman, caught together in a web so tangled it begs the question: Will they ever get out?


I was excited to read this book, and it did not disappoint. I loved it. I enjoyed being reacquainted with characters from the first book in the series and getting to know new ones. The characters were complex with various motivations for their actions. I enjoyed the story with its various twists and turns. The book was so good, I didn’t want to put it down and read it in one day. After reading this book, I want to go back and reread the first book. And I look forward to when the next book comes out in this series. I have some inklings regarding what it might be about based on the end of this book.


Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
